Anyone had one on their bike? Planning to keep my cbr until spring and whack a noisy pipe on it for a laugh (which I will sell with the bike or separately).

Looking at an Akrapovic or Yoshimura RS-5 slip on.

Any views that could help me make a call?

I've been looking at Yoshi's for my gixxer. The standard one is the size of an old-school garden incinerator, and sounds like said incinerator full of angry bees, when it's wound up. 

 I don't really have anything constructive to add, but would be interested on any replies.

There are so many different clips on YouTube, it's hard to make a choice. The bottom line is that it'll make little or no difference to power but simply make it sound pretty mental! 

Main differences seem to be design, materials used, engine note at idle/revving and price.

I guess a lot of it just comes down to personal taste and budget.

The problem I find is that all aftermarkets seem to make bikes silly loud. Would be nice to be able to get a good sound without being an obnoxious twat.

Yeah I suspect most will be seriously loud, I'm sure I can live with it for 6 months...

I think we fall into the same bracket: we don't want an exhaust that's note roars "Cunnnnnnnnt!!!" , as we fly past school girls, trying to impress them. But, that subtlety makes ours bikes slightly less raspy than the stock can. 

 I, personally, won't be purchasing one, until early next year, so in no massive rush to buy one.

I'm gonna wait for one of you to waste your money on terrible ones then I'll buy the decent leftovers from you for a fraction of their original price.

They are only loud with the baffles removed. I have a yoshimura fitted and its pretty reasonable. Will upload a video tomorrow ;)

I had an Art can without a baffle on my 600 and it was bloody outrageous in terms of noise.

Just a end can? Never not been with out them! Got a pair of arrows on mine at the moment that run 99db with the baffles removed, with ear plugs in makes the bike easier to ride IMO you can hear what the engine is doing more.

My GSXR isnt much louder with the Yoshimura end can on than my XJR1300 was stock, and the XJR had a Cat.

What sort of 'loud', though? Is it too loud? 

Problem with the stock can on mine (apart from it's hideous appearance, is how raspy it sounds)


 It wasn't until I went out with a mate on his k6/7(?), that I noticed just how throaty/raspy mine reaLy is. My mates sounds a lot smoother, and has deeper, but not too loud 'vrooom' note to it. (Sorry if my technical jargon is to much for y'all)

My Rallye with a decat & pugsport is louder at idle :) and that's about 92db. 

 

The bike is almost certainly louder at high revs though.

I'd buy an aftermarket can if it sounded that much nicer, one of the problems with the SV was that I had the exhaust replaced from new purely because it looked terrible, and as a result it was louder. Coupled with the fact it's a lumpy twin and I'd actually feel quite conscious of coming home late or going out early. It's not silly loud, but enough that people could get annoyed if you left it running for a couple of minutes at 5am to warm up. The Fazer is much quieter, and I like that. I wouldn't take the SV for a ride around down in the middle of the night, so I'm quite looking forward to having a quieter bike.

Especially as I'll have less torque on the GSXR, I'm aware it'll need more revs.
